About the book from Goodreads
As a young boy, Pao comes to Jamaica in the wake of the Chinese Civil War and rises to become the Godfather of Kingston’s bustling Chinatown. Pao needs to take care of some dirty business, but he is no Don Corleone. The rackets he runs are small-time and the protection he provides necessary, given the minority status of the Chinese in Jamaica. Pao, in fact, is a sensitive guy in a wise guy role that doesn’t quite fit. Often mystified by all that he must take care of, Pao invariably turns to Sun Tzu’s Art of War. The juxtaposition of the weighty, aphoristic words of the ancient Chinese sage, and the tricky criminal and romantic predicaments Pao must negotiate goes far toward explaining the novel’s great charm. (more)

Reeling from a devastating discovery, Prince Attrebus continues on his seemingly doomed quest to obtain a magic sword that holds the key to destroying the deadly invaders. Meanwhile, in the Imperial City, the spy Colin finds evidence of betrayal at the heart of the empire—if his own heart doesn’t betray him first.

Day 07 - A picture of your most treasured item.


Oh I got all sorts of treasures (abubot) hahaha! by far I think this is the oldest one that survived all those massive giveaways I got this from my Aunt Joyce when I was six years old I hardly remember to be honest but for sure I was a little kid back then.This toy is awesome! I looked at the bottom label ugh china!-_- but it's all good still works it's some sorta like an action figure for girls way back or so hahaha! kidding aside I'll explain vividly the mechanism of action of this incredible toy when you press the center brown part of the castle the one that looks like a smiley face it will automatically open up the entire castle hence you'll see Daisy, you can also detach Daisy to the foot of the castle and play with as a solo character,you can flap her arms and that's basically it, simple yet adorable, I'm greatly entertained by it when I was a youngster up to now hahaha!  forever a kid at heart. Thanks for all the good memories. FYI I still got my abubots with me (some of it) and I plan on keeping them,there's room for more but I can't hoard stuff for the time being ugh ~_~

What's your treasured item?

Only Time Will Tell By Jeffrey Archer


Yipee-ka-YEY! I can't wait to receive,read and make a review about this book XD

About the book (from Goodreads)

The "Clifton Chronicles" is Jeffrey Archer's most ambitious work in four decades as an international bestselling author. The epic tale of Harry Clifton's life begins in 1920, with the chilling words, 'I was told that my father was killed in the war'. But it will be another twenty years before Harry discovers how his father really died, which will only lead him to question: who was his father? Is he the son of Arthur Clifton, a stevedore who worked in Bristol docks, or the first born son of a scion of West Country society, whose family owns a shipping line? "Only Time Will Tell" covers the years from 1920 to 1940, and includes a cast of memorable characters that "The Times" has compared to "The Forsyte Saga". (more)

Day 05 - A picture of your favorite memory.

Without a doubt its COLLEGE LIFE for me..it's really not like the college I used to think like "C'mon guys let's go to our resthouse at laguna" or like "Let's Party or travel somewhere na lang outside the country" yup..it's conyo (what's conyo? I think it's a mix of english and in this case filipino language plus your swag) anyway back to the story and so college? it's more like starting my highschool life all over again. In my alma mater I know,met and found my true friends...First year college is definitely the highlight of it all most people would say its the graduation or parties etc. but it really starts here. Those first awkward moments hahaha! I'm lucky enough to have Josh who's my fourth year highschool classmate we all became extremely close and comfortable with each other and planned to unite our entire section SUCCESS! then...heck a group project or assignment would immediately turn straight off to an outing or overnight whatever oh the good old days. We all know we're gonna miss that that's why we made the most out of it.We laugh,cry,got drunk and wasted anything you could possibly think of we've been thru all that together.

In that picture right there we just accomplished our NSTP community outreach program, we had loads of fun, my first time to clean up a creek (some part of it) because over time that creek was turned into a rubbish bin which is still the problem of my dear beloved homeland,that's also where I got my massive headache and the year I got diagnosed with astigmatism oh the raging heatwaves of the sun ~_~ we all just love that summer lovin fun while it lasted XD

The Good news is the fraternity "gang group" organized a creek community clean up after us and they say it's now spotless I'm glad to see the citizens of that community took action. I think they rented a tractor for that MASSIVE CLEANUP DRIVE INDEED! :D

I don't get it

Since I moved..a lot of things changed in which I thought wouldn't it's all good but there are things I still don't get like irrational geriatric thinking 
maybe that's why it's irrational in the first place..me being tactless is on the line as well it's as if I'm digging my own grave so more shutup time for me hahaha! kidding aside what I always said are true and based from facts (most of the time) and so I started a blog that leads to another and it's all piled up mentally screwed emotions.I guess that's my anger management.
Another temporary feeling as always it comes and goes then it will all flood back or get to me Oh such classic phenomena..story of my life.

Day 04 - A picture of your night.

I came across this Eclipse Gif from one of my friend's reblog tumblr page and I followed the source so this photo/gif ain't mine(click the photo and follow her if you like ^_^) but it sure is one of my favourite nights it was taken last June 15,2011. They say my zodiac Cancer is extremely influenced by the moon especially when it's a full moon or an eclipse but I don't feel anything different just same old same old me (or is it?haha!). I believe something awesome happened that I'm extremely happy that night but I was like OMFG! It's such a shame I wasn't able to document such rare occurence but I'm extremely happy and satisfied with this gif transformation GENIUS! :)

What about you guys?do you also feel or believe that the planets or stars around influence you in some way?

Layouts





Special thanks to MissGennD for sharing her knowledge about backgrounds..I enjoyed every bit of browsing and customizing.Ok so I'm a bit dizzy with all these advance section and color manipulation but I think I did a pretty good job *pat in the back* to be honest I'm completely torn between my chosen TOP 5 layouts as featured above and so...since it's summer I'm gonna use this blue background with a starfish on it at the moment. ^_^v

Day 03 - A picture of the cast from your favorite show.

Way back third year college I'm definitely hooked with this guy and show I love his humor and intelligence though he's a bit of an arse but I know deep down he's just hurt and extremely nice when you get to know him..he's just keepin it real. Being like that you'll definitely know for sure whose your real friends are..indeed it's true and those work in a couple of situations.Though I can't barely move on to season 5 and that I started way too late before hopefully I could find time and finish all the seasons. Thank you Dr. House,to this show's producers,writers,all cast and crew members you taught me a lot of things keep up the good work and more power plus upcoming seasons :D

I'm new yet old in this type of field well you know those "DEAR DIARY" days things/words better left unspoken and written secretly then locked away  somewhere not a single soul except you who knows where that secret hiding spot was. So true haha! but most of the time I got a little bit of variation going on..Depends on my mood it could either be stashed away or burned then forgotten oh such odd times and memories.

Now for a debut starter page I dunno exactly what I want to blog about basically..I write in this case type anything I like or love hence in times like these anything goes :)  flights of ideas came in rushing inside my head all I have to do is get hold of those concept then boom! there's my piece right there.I'll try to update this account as much as possible hopefully during my freetime. I'm looking forward for more things to blab I mean blog about ^_^v
